Some teachers lacked teaching experience and this was at times visible. More experienced teachers should be attracted if possible.

I wish I had known...
Buy your winter coat at home! In Canada, they do not sell better winter clothes than in Austria, even if the temperature goes down to MINUS 30°C in Canada.

Personal comments
The Quebecois accent is ver different to the Parisian french you get taught in schools. At the beginning it can be a shock but after a coupls of weeks you get used to it. There is plenty of opportunity to improve, but if you are really stuck, you can always talk english.

There is only one person in charge and she is simply swamped with all the work. Furthermore we had to pay 5 rental fees for 4 months + our rental fee was far over market price. However the flat was ok and it saved me a lot of time and worries.
